Feel Safer Now?


1. In order for organizations to function, there must be a free flow of information.
This is a complex process, which becomes even more complicated when information is
expected to flow freely from one government agency to another. This is the difficulty

sources of breakdowns in information present before the attacks in New York.

One of the large breakdowns in information was due to information overload. There are many
agencies in the states which involve national safety, such as the FBI, CIA, NSA and DAINS.
